When square phones don't work, what's BlackBerry to do? Combine the weirdest new hardware trend and a classic old one together in one super (silly?) smartphone. Blackberry teased the new "dual-curved, all-touch display with a keyboard—yes a slider device!" at this years Mobile World Congress.
Blackberry calls it "the Slider". Details on the device are scant for now; handset chief Ron Louks only held it up on stage for a quick peek. (Louks, by the way, is the same Blackberry executive that has said the company's goal was to release "at least one unconventional device" a year.)
It's unclear when the Slider will see primetime, but rest assured that if you want to buy a slider phone you'll soon be able to choose between competing models from Blackberry and Mozilla. Here's hoping a N-Gage 2015 is in development, too. [BlackBerry]
